“Kansas City is more of a K-State town and a KU town than a Missouri town." -- Bill Self
Subsequently verified by the KC Star who contacted the respective schools for a metro alumni count:
KU = 57,000, KSU = 28,000, MU = 25,000.

The next day the Columbia Daily Tribune followed up by only saying, "there were 19,000 Kansas State graduates living in Johnson County, Kan.", ignoring the prior article and the other four metro counties.

So which school will be best represented at the KCFG? Wouldn't be funny if it turned out to be UMKC and PSU... in a dead heat no less? Roos and Gorillas? :lol:
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

I'm in. I think a slight correction needs to be made to the location: north side of 103rd Street, just west of Wornall. (Might be tough finding the north side of Wornall or the west side of 103rd St.)
Climb on!

Correction made. Good catch.

Thanks for organizing that, Gene! Nice to meet you and other 14er.com members, even if some reside on the wrong side of state line. :twisted: :lol:

Everyone seemed to have a great time visiting. Great turnout also: TallGrass, wineguy, Sarge, Tireiron, ElDChopper, Kansan, Subway, GaryG, frank boal, hwheel1256, KSU Wildcat, dennis 1950, Grant, Greg, Mark, Carolyn, and Janice. There are several others who had planned to make it but didn't, as well as many others I know of in the area who could have been there but must have had something else to do. Given the turnout, we will pull another one together after the first of the year. Who knows, there might be a decent college basketball game to organize a gathering around?

Thanks to all (subway, Gene913, et. al.) for your encouragement of this newbie. Hoping to remedy that this week.
Climb on!
